What will be when I am gone?

Eat's debut album, Sell Me A God, came out in 1989. At the time it was a pretty big deal, as they were the first band to release anything on the Fiction (Polygram) label other than the Cure, and that's what led me to purchase it. Don't expect them to sound like the Cure, however. According to Trouser Press:
Merging elements as diverse as the Doors, Gang of Four and Big Audio Dynamite, Eat created an instantly familiar record that ultimately sounds like no one else.
And I'd say that was true. I'd also add a bit of the Screaming Blue Messiahs to the mix. Trouser Press goes on to say:
the group collapsed in 1990, the twin victim of lineup defections and singer Ange Dolittle's debilitating heroin habit.
They went on to finish another album, which I haven't heard...and to form some other bands, you can find out more at Trouser Press. You can also buy it from Amazon for $1.60!

Here are two tracks from their debut album, "Sell Me A God."

Nah, it's a pretty good album, overall. I don't listen to it as much as I used to, but it holds up pretty well.
